America’s Got Talent finale starts tonight; So You Think You Can Dance ends tonight

FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance 2 concludes tonight with a two-hour finale that starts at 8 p.m. ET. The best dancer gets a car, $100,000, and a spot dancing with Celine Dion in her Las Vegas show. Only Benji, Donyelle, Heidi, and Travis remain, and if you want to know what they’ll perform tonight, Nigel Lythgoe reveals their performances in an audio interview with TV Week.

At the exact same time, NBC’s America’s Got Talent airs its penultimate episode, a two-hour episode. The 10 finalists include the rappin’ Granny, the quick change couple, The Passing Zone, and All That.

The talent show, as my mom likes to call it, concludes tomorrow night with the live results show at 9:30 p.m. The winner gets $1 million.
